Philadelphia lawmakers again select Dawkins to lead their House delegation in 2021-22 legislative session

(Nov 13, 2020)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 13 -- State Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., will again serve as chairman of the House Democratic Caucus’ 25-member Philadelphia County Delegation for the 2021-22 legislative session. Democratic lawmakers of the delegation selected Dawkins during leadership elections on Thursday. Dawkins said delegation members also re-selected Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta as vice chairman and Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler as treasurer and secretary. “I am honored by my colleagues’ trust in my ideas and abilities and look forward to continuing my role in helping to move Philadelphia and our agenda forward,” Dawkins said. “By working together toward our shared goals, we can make certain that Philadelphia remains an economic powerhouse for Pennsylvania while ensuring equality and justice for all people in our economy, in our society and in our response to crisis, from police reform to getting guns off our streets and ensuring justice, equality and science in our pandemic response.” In the current legislative session Dawkins and the House Philadelphia Delegation laid out an agenda that focuses on investing in schools and educational opportunity, reforming a criminal justice system that continues to be rife with injustice, affordable and accessible health care for all, strengthening commercial corridors in the city, reducing gun violence and investing in clean energy sources that would produce thousands of jobs, while addressing climate Read more

State lawmakers representing Philadelphia welcome lawsuit against commonwealth, legislature for restricting gun-safety measures

(Oct 07, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 7 – State House lawmakers representing the House Philadelphia Delegation and Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus today pledged their full weight behind major legal action being taken against the commonwealth for preventing local governments from enacting their own gun-safety laws. The lawsuit filed by the city and private law firms on behalf of Pennsylvanians who have been impacted by gun violence was announced at a news conference in Philadelphia today. Philadelphia Delegation Chairman Jason Dawkins and PLBC Chairman Stephen Kinsey said it was long past time for the many people who have been impacted by gun violence to receive true acknowledgement and justice for their pain. They said the delegations they lead have worked for years to enact sensible gun-safety measures in the state but have been hampered by a Republican majority legislature determined to give no one in the state the ability to reduce gun violence and save lives. “Philadelphia and municipalities across the state took action tragedy after tragedy on behalf of the residents they serve when the state would not, only to be met with callous laws specifically designed to prevent them from doing so,” Dawkins said. “I am equally tired of the hallow promises to help reduce gun violence being made by the Republican majority following each tragedy. They hold the power to move the commonsense gun safety legislation we put forward. Yet, they continue to deny Read more

Fiedler announces Housing Working Group to tackle rent and mortgage issues during COVID-19 pandemic

(Aug 13, 2020)

HARRISBURG, August 13 – Today, state Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler, D-Phila., announced the formation of a statewide Housing Working Group to deal with the impact of COVID-19 and address the serious housing needs of renters and homeowners across her legislative district and the commonwealth. “The goal of this working group I helped create with the House Democratic Caucus is to give our constituents a direct way to share their opinions and experiences with us and with the governor. Everyone should have a place to call home always, but especially during this pandemic.” The Housing Working Group will bring together lived experiences from residents across Fiedler’s district and the commonwealth, as well as draw on internal multidisciplinary support in the fields of urban affairs, human services, local government and more. Members of the Working Group have dedicated themselves to pushing for a variety of legislative and executive actions to ensure everyone has a place to call home. Fiedler encouraged Pennsylvanians to share their experiences and to voice their opinions by completing a new public online form launched today by House Democrats. The form will remain open for public comment for a week, after which lawmakers will process and submit it to the governor with their recommendations for action. The state’s foreclosure and eviction moratorium is slated to expire on Aug. 31. Fiedler said part of her motivation for Read more
